StatBroadcast will also provide its StatMonitr real-time stats service for media covering UNI events.
"It's my pleasure to introduce our first new partner for the 2011-2012 school year in the UNI Panthers. UNI enjoys a proud athletic tradition and we're happy to have them on board as part of the StatBroadcast network," said StatBroadcast president Nate Policar.
